Cubs News and Notes: Baseball Season's Here Again
This is the last news and notes article before the regular season begins. If you’re interested to see my (and the rest of the Cubs Den staff) predictions look here. With less than a week of Spring Training to go, it’s time for various media outlets to begin making predictions. ESPN asked: “Are the Cubs... Read more »

The Den Podcast - Ep 7: New Cubs, Old Cubs, Rule 5, Hottest of Hot Stoves, and Mailbag
Myles and John talk about the reliever market, the Rule 5 draft, Jake Arrieta’s extension talks and Fowler to the Red Birds. (Jared totally called that on a previous episode by the way.) We also open up the newly formed The Den Mailbag to answer your questions. Myles gets a bit heated on one. Be... Read more »

The Marathon: Cubs 8, Pirates 7

The Marathon: Cubs 8, Pirates 7
This game was nuts. It was long, had #drama, and was long. Did I mention it was long? It’s now a day after this game started as a I write this. I don’t know what you do if you’re the Pirates. It was going to hurt for either team to lose a game as long... Read more »

Game 120 Preview: Cubs vs Brewers @1:20pm

Game 120 Preview: Cubs vs Brewers @1:20pm
What a week it’s been. First, the Cubs drop the final two games in the set against the divisional rival Cardinals. Then, they rebound to take 3 games in 2 days against the Brewers putting themselves in a position to sweep the 4 game set at home. And Rizzo made an insanely awesome catch. What’s that?...

[Insert Soler Pun Here] - Cubs 6, Brewers 1

[Insert Soler Pun Here] - Cubs 6, Brewers 1
I don’t like the pun that goes along with Jorge’s power and bat speed. You know the one. And if you like it, that’s totally fine. I’m not judging at all. It’s just not for me. But regardless, he did some awesome stuff tonight at the plate. Brewer starter, Jimmy Nelson, had a rough beginning... Read more »

Game 118 Preview: Cubs vs Brewers @7:05pm CST
I’m a little steamed right now. It actually has nothing to do with baseball but, at this moment, this is the only outlet I have to voice my frustration. So, I beg of you, indulge me for a minute before I get to the preview. I take my dog, Bunk, to doggie daycare about twice a... Read more »

Szcz The Day: Cubs 13, Cardinals 2

Szcz The Day: Cubs 13, Cardinals 2
In an afternoon game following a late night extra inning win, the Cubs had several key arms in their bullpen unavailable and were resting their usual lead off batter, Dexter Fowler, so this was a game that pretty easily would have been forgiven for not going the Cubs’ way. After all, it’s well known by... Read more »

Another One Bites the Dust: Cubs 4, Athletics 0

Another One Bites the Dust: Cubs 4, Athletics 0
To answer the question preemptively, yes, the Queen song was on the Billboard Top 100 in 1981 – the year of today’s throwback uniforms, and yes, I had to look it up to make sure. And no, I wasn’t alive yet that year. I came into the world in the same year as Eye of... Read more »

The Return of the Jorge: Cubs 7 Athletics 2

The Return of the Jorge: Cubs 7 Athletics 2
Jorge Soler spent two months returning from a hamstring injury that cost him June and July with the Cubs, and he’s spent the last few weeks in Iowa and Tennessee preparing for his return. Neither place is quite Dagobah, but whether his numbers in those rehab games suggested that he was ready for a return,... Read more »

Game 57 Preview: Cubs @ Phillies 6:05pm CST

Game 57 Preview: Cubs @ Phillies 6:05pm CST
Sometimes I tend to focus on the bad. For example, a lot of great things happened in yesterday’s game. First off, they won–that’s always a positive no matter what. Then you have Jason Heyward‘s homer, which shows that perhaps now that it’s June, his power could be coming around. You had a Jon Lester double. (What?!)... Read more »
